Airport Lost And Found Reunites Travelers With Long-Lost Items From More Than 10,000 Airports And Airlines

NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching, air travel in the United States is expected to surge. The last two weeks of December typically see tens of millions of people boarding planes for domestic and international travel. Naturally, more people moving through airport terminals mean more opportunity for items of value to be lost or forgotten. Airport Lost and Found ( http://www.airportlostandfound.com) offers a solution to the perennial problem of lost item recovery. As a global and fully integrated system, Airport Lost and Found boasts a 78% success rate in returning a wide range of valuables to their rightful owners.

Airport Lost and Found connects the lost and found divisions of more than 9,000 airports and 900 airlines across the world, including eateries, shopping outlets and other commercial spaces inside airport terminals. When an airline passenger realizes that he has misplaced something of value, he can navigate to the Airport Lost and Found website and make a claim. The website's interface allows for the entry of as much detail as the user can provide. Generally, more information raises the odds of quick recovery. Once a claim is submitted, the process of matching that claim against the database begins.

Airport Lost and Found features a sophisticated logging and database system that brings together the collective knowledge of every airport and airline in the system. Today, lost and found departments at airports take advantage of the newest technologies, photographing and cataloging every lost item that enters their system. These items are then entered into a digital, searchable database. Airport Lost and Found leverages the power of these databases to match user's claims against a vast inventory of photos and descriptions. Specific location data entered by the user serves as the starting point for the search.
